So I was messing around with the fields that define albums and put date added as one of the fields. This caused Musicbee to crash and it no longer launches at all. Just crashes right away I assume.

Since I don't want to make a new library/redo all my settings, I was wondering if I could find the location of these fields in the files and edit them manually? I checked the file in appdata, the config in the main folder, and the library settings file but couldn't find anything. Would really appreciate any help with this. And I'll try not to be this stupid again lol

there isnt a single easy way to find all the different relevant settings

The issue is: <TagAlbumGroupingField1>180</TagAlbumGroupingField1>

i dont think it will be possible to include an attribute like AlbumDateAdded as part of the definition of an album
